Got Berries ?!?

Why YES, Yes I Do!!! What started off as a typical card making day in my craft room ended up with an adorable Berry Basket with matching notecards and strawberry "boxes". If you haven't noticed, berry boxes are trending and are all the rage right now and honestly, it's no wonder why. They are easy to make and stinkin' adorable when finished. You can also make strawberry "boxes" to coordinate with your berry box, and frankly, it doesn't get any cuter than that!! 

The typical pattern that I found on the internet is for a box that is approximately 3 1/4" x 3 1/8"; however, I wanted something a little bigger so I printed a pattern and enlarged it 135%. By doing that, it gave me a basket that is roughly 3 1/4" tall x 4 1/4" at the base. I mention the base measurement because the basket is flared at the top. This means it is wider at the top than at the base (the top measures approximately 5 1/4" across). I particularly like the size of my basket because it can hold larger objects like ... standard size coordinating notecards! Oh how I *LOVE* all things matchy, matchy (that's what my hubby calls my coordinated items)!! So now that you have an idea of what I made and how I tweaked the measurements to suit my fancy, let me show you my downright adorable ensemble!! Ladies & Gentlemen ... my Berry Basket with coordinating notecards AND strawberry boxes!! Woo Hoo!!!

That's all for me today! I am hoping to spend part of my day tomorrow back at my desk working on another project for y'all.  Until next time ...

Hugs, Smiles, Blessings, and Happy Stamping!!
